So my son just turned 7. Do to his extreme problems at school and at home, I had him assessed early this spring. He was diagnosed with a learning disorder and conduct disorder. He has extensive support at school. And yet everyday he hurts kids and the staff around him. He stabs them with his pencils, throws his shoes at them, pinches, he grabs at them...the list goes on. The other day at the pool he walked up to a kid and said wanna see something funny? and poked the kid in the eye laughing. He tries holding kids underwater too. He has no friends. He is miserable to me every moment of everyday. Everything is a huge battle with screaming and fighting and stomping. His tone of voice is always snotty or argumentative. He will do anything to get out of doing everything except play Nintendo and watch tv. He sneaks up repeatedly every single night to sneak tv/Nintendo. He is mean to animals to the point that you cannot leave him alone with them. I have put him on schedule, consistent bedtimes, no junk food or process food. He has consistent rules at home. He has to earn his time on the Nintendo. Homework before tv. But nothing helps. He hardly gets rewards and I keep making the tasks to earn rewards simplier and simplier and he still rarely ends up earning them. I try to do "fun" stuff in hopes that having positive life experiences will make him happier but it doesn't help. I am slowly getting to the point that im too embarrassed and scared for others safety to take him anywhere. I cry, a lot. And when im not crying, lately I find myself shutting down. I dread picking him up from school/daycare, to hear who and how he hurt someone today. I dread waking up in the morning knowing the battle is about to start again. I'm coming to the conclusion that there isn't anything I can do and that this is my life. So here I am on a parenting support forum.
